5:08 pm
two hos later, i get a phone call that he's dead. did mr. collins have any... medical conditions-- asthma, heart problems? you think he had a heart attack? that crazy cop killed him. (sighs) did anybody see what happened? i have not interviewed the officers yet, but apparently there were no eyewitnesses to the actual incident. well, there's a shock. a building full of cops, and no one saw a damn thing? i understand that you're upset. if you just let the investigation take its course, i assure you that... i've been in the system before, okay? you guys work with the cops every day.
5:09 pm
(indistinct chatter) how you holding up? had better days. talk to iab? not yet. guy came at me, jamie. the hell was i supposed to do? thing is, i'm getting interviewed, so... can't talk about it. yeah. i get it. you hang in there. you know, my old man... ...thought i was crazy when i took this job. said it was crazy to put your life on the line for peanuts. might not be wrong.
5:10 pm
(loud, overlapping shouting) (loud, overlapping shouting) looks like this is gonna get ugly. yeah, i could use a beer. just one? doubtful. you in? oh, yeah. randy cutter is pretty shaken up. yeah. i've only talked to him a couple times, but everybody says he's a really good cop. could have happened to any of us in that bathroom. don't remind me. i saw your dad. his press conference on the news. he's in a tough spot. he's used to it. crisis management's a family tradition. it was cool the way he stood up for your sister. yeah, that reporter got off easy. when it comes to sticking up for his kids, my old man doesn't take prisoners. must be nice to know you can count on him. (indistinct, overlapping shouting)

(sighs) i... will say that finding out from a couple of reporters was not ideal. yeah, i'm sorry about that, but things were moving so fast.
5:12 pm
death in custody is a whole different deal. i understand. i don't think you do. see, the other guy on trial here is me. that's how this playout. with you in the middle... are you saying i should have gotten your permission before ting this case? i'm just saying... that your participation complicates an already difficult situation. yeah, and have you thought that it works both ways? having you as a pc hasn't made it exactly easy for me. i know that. but there are any number of prosecutors who could have handled this case, and there is only one pc. yeah, and the fact that he is my father isn't gonna stop me from doing my job! thank you for your support with the reporters today. excuse me.
5:13 pm
(door opens) (door closes) erin: officer cutter was on the job nassau county for six years. according to his evaluations, cutter was a model cop. yeah, and he and his partner did volunteer to be interviewed this afternoon. nice digs. craig, i didn't know they let you out of the m.e.'s office. (chuckles) every now and then, we walk among the living. you got a second for me? yeah, sure. richard. i got the preliminary findings on christopher collins' cause of death. well, you could have just e-mailed that to me. eh, for you i schlep, especially since the case is all over the front page. did the tox screen come back with drugs in collins' system? nope. clean as a whistle. hmm. nice.
5:14 pm
craig. cause of death. oh, yeah. anoxic brain injury. does that come in english? christopher collins sustained pressure to the carotid arte-- cuts off oxygen to the brain, resulting in respiratory arrest. are you saying collins was choked to death? yep. you got an old-fashioned homicide on your hands.

5:17 pm
take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is the number one prescribed blood tnner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no kno dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto was the right move for us.

has no obligation to talk to you. i-i know you got a job to do, and i got nothing to hide. can you take me through the incident? my partner and i brought the suspect into the precinct. we stopped at the front desk, i secured my weapon. then, on the way to the cell area, he says he needs to use the bathroom. was collins handcuffed at this point? yes. but once we got inside, i took 'em off so he could relieve himself. everything was fine till i tried to put the cuffs back on. erin: what happened? cutter: i got one of the cuffs on, and he complains it's too tight. he starts resisting. the guy's strong as an ox. next thing i know, we're going at it. did you call for help? i tried. he had his hands
5:20 pm
did you have your hands on his throat at any point? choke holds are againsdepartment policy. was that a no? yeah. uh, when i finally got control of him, i called for my partner. that's when i... noticed collins was unconscious. at first i thought he was faking. you know? and... then i realized he wasn't breathing. look, i'm... sick about what happened, ms. reagan. but if i didn't defend myself, it would have been me dead in that bathroom. and where were you when the incident occurred? i went down the hall to run the prisoner for warrants while officer cutter took him to the bathroom. and when were you aware that there was something wrong?
5:21 pm
i heard randy... officer cutter, uh, call for help. i ran down the hallway. when i entered the bathroom, i saw cutter on the floor with the perp, who was unconscious. at any point, did you see officer cutter... apply any kind of choke hold on mr. collins? no. no, i didn't see anything like that. sarge is looking for volunteers to take an inmate back to prison after he testifies downtown. sure. thanks, boss. you got it, reagan. uh, which prison? i think he's from lincoln correctional. what? (quietly): would you cut the crap? hmm? you know my das locked up over there. yeah, i remember you told me that.
5:22 pm
i know you think you're helping. you're not. look, you have to talk to him at some point. no. i don't think that i need to talk to him at some point. it's not gonna be a tearful reunion, okay? not everyone comes from a perfect family, reagan. hey, trust me, we have our moments. you ever been betrayed by the person you trust most in the world? you ever find out that everything you grew up believing was a lie? no. you know what? if i need someone to fix my life, i'm gonna call a shrink, not a cop. frannie: you're saying that cop strangled christopher? his death has en ruled a homicide. however, it's still unclear if officer cutter's use of force was... justified. meaning he could still get away with it. mommy? can i bring gus? of course. say hi to ms. reagan.
5:23 pm
hi. i like your elephant. thank you. she's beautiful. takes after her father. chris, uh... was, um... a good person. he wanted to get married. i... i could never get my act together. what were you two arguing about the day he died? i told him i want to take alex to live in chicago. that's where my family's from. so he was upset you were leaving? alex was everything to him. i hate to admit it, but he was a... he was a much better parent than me. so when the police came and tried to take him away, he... i guess he panicked. the thought of being far from alex, it... just... made him crazy.
5:24 pm
but... ...he didn't deserve to die for loving his little girl. (elevator bell dings) look at this welcoming committee. thanks for coming in, norm. oh. yeah, anything for my old boss. how's long island treating you? eh, good. i get a lot more fishing in than when i worked for you. how you doing? hi, chief, how are you? baker, i need a few minutes undisturbed with the chief. yes, sir. take a load off. mm-hmm. you still got that old boston whaler? yep. just put a brand-new cooler in. (chuckles) i like a man who's got his priorities straight. i wanted to talk to you about randy cutter. i figured that. it's a hell of a situation. he was under your command for six ars. what can you tell me? randy had a solid reputation. evaluations were excellent.
5:25 pm
why'd he leave? eh, a lot of guys out there, uh, they think that the nypd's top of the line. (chuckles) you guys pay more. eh, i guess he wanted to know what it was like to work in the big city. well... now he knows. (indistinct chatter) kara, thank you for meeting me. my lawyer told me not to talk to you again. and yet here you are. i met christopher collins' daughter today. how's she doing? it's tough. her father was everything to her.
5:26 pm
collins had just learned that his... ex was moving their daughter to chicago. you have kids? yeah. my son's three-and-a-half. so you can imagine how he was feeling. that didn't give him the right to resist arrest. or attack a cop. no. but i don't think he deserved to die for trying to keep his family together. when you've been a prosecutor for a while, you kind of get a sense when... someone isn't telling you everything they know. i should go. did you see officer cutter apply a choke hold to collins in that bathroom? i've been riding with randy for over a year. he's the best cop i know, and he saved my life on more than one occasion so i can go home to my kid. so, in other words, you're willing to lie for him. because when i call you in front of that grand jury, you will be under oath.
